Shopping Spree? Because I Can Get It Cheaper Here!

Shopping Spree?  Seems like a long forgotten words. It has been awhile since I last pampered my self these kind of luxuries. Once I commit myself to travel the world, as much as I can (afford) ~ before I dies (which is anytime if Allah will) ~ I had refrained myself from spending my hard-earned money to buy things I don’t really need anymore.

But, Why Jakarta?

Jakarta (Indonesia) is the best place to indulge oneself if you really needs to satisfy your craving for shopping spree therapy. You can get it all here. From the many big malls such as Grand Indonesia, Plaza Indonesia to the cheapest “grosiran” at Tanah Abang, Mangga Dua and few more. My personal choice is Thamrin City – one of the big shopping centre in central Jakarta with more than 1000 tenants. While it still consider as “Pusat Grosir” – cheap alternative but better value than Mangga Dua or the rest. Lesser traffic jammed and just a walking distance from Ascot – the place I stayed.

Shopping Spree To Jakarta

Our flight scheduled at 11:25am but delayed till 12.18PM. Landed at Terminal 2 (my first time). The Terminal’s not so busy and easy navigation. Our transportation to our hotel was waiting outside. Our journey to Central Jakarta went smoothly at first but when we reach Jalan Sudirman, the jammed started, especially in front of Grand Indonesia.

Let Pictures Spoke For Itself.
